City of Vancouver (Washington) buys former mall

Vancouver buys Tower Mall property
Based on the historical photo, the center was apparently originally anchored by Safeway and Leslies (Leslies was apparently Valu-Mart, a Washington based retailer that went from membership based to open shopping then bankrupt).

In recent years the center has mostly been office and other uses - the article indicates a portion is being rented to a church, currently.

The city hopes to repurpose the lot similar to many other "dead mall" (or dying) developers to include housing, retail and office uses.

That was never really much of a mall. I went in there once when there was some kind of closeout store in the spot that was the old Safeway. It has been mostly offices for years.
